    That's what I did, 2 double cheesburgers, large fries and a shake when I was trying to gain weight. Of course might be why my cholesterol is a bit high today....:nod:

    Huge shout out to Victor, incredible downfield blocking that sprung some of our biggest plays. Oh and those huge catches of course, glad to see him get rewarded for the great blocking. He's turning into the player I hoped he would be here, what a talent.

    For being so slim he really is one hell of a blocker.

    While I think he likely does have some good muscle weight to put on, guys with that type of frame can still be strong and not look a lot of it is form. AJ Green is in that boat, he's had plenty of time in an NFL strength program. I think he can put on some good muscle in the offseason, but I don't suspect we'll see a total transformation there.

    Ohio State's run game is the story, but Binjimen Victor and the WRs can't be ignored

    The sophomore Buckeye WR has all the tools to dominate.


    The commentators couldn't help themselves: the word they used most often to describe the Ohio State football team during Saturday's 48-3 rout of Michigan State was angry.

    Truly, the Buckeyes had every right to be angry, a week removed from the most embarrassing loss of the Urban Meyer era in Columbus. They didn't just lose to Iowa on one or two bad calls or fluky plays; they got absolutely trounced. So they returned to Columbus angry, and the visiting Spartans got both barrels.

    The bulk of that anger worked itself out in the run game. Mike Weber had arguably his best day as a Buckeye, finding the end zone twice, including at the end of an 82-yard bat-out-of-hell scamper, while J.K. Dobbins had his face taken off the proverbial milk carton and went for 144 all-purpose yards. It felt so good, so righteous, to watch the Buckeyes dominate by returning to the power run game for the first time in forever.

    But the sound lashing the Buckeyes gave the Spartans showed itself off in the passing game, too. And one of the players that shone the brightest in the air last weekend also looks an awful lot like the future of the wide receiver position at Ohio State.

    The stats
    Name: Binjimen Victor

    Number: 9

    Position: WR

    Year: Sophomore

    Height/Weight: 6'4, 195 lbs.

    Line: 20 receptions, 310 yards, 5 TDs

    If you were building an NFL-caliber receiver from scratch, you could do a lot worse than Binjimen Victor. Coming in at 6'4 and just under 200 lbs., Victor is a matchup nightmare for defensive backs at any level.

    While he barely made an impact as a freshman, last year's Ohio State offense was operating during J.T. Barrett's nadir as a passer. Barrett is back to destroying worlds in 2017, and Victor has been there to help him do it—he's the third-most-targeted player on the team, with 20 catches going for 15.5 per and five scores on the year. It's not as though he's just picking on the hapless, either; watch this clip of Victor handling a defender on what was, until recently, regarded as a pretty fearsome secondary.

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    Predicting this dude to make a major step this year. An increased focus on the passing game and a QB with a good/great arm spell trouble for the B1G and the rest of the country.

    Dude is gonna do big things.

    (*fingers crossed of course*)

    Consistency the Final Step for Victor


    Wide receivers have been a deep unit throughout the spring for the Buckeyes, with all members of Zone 6 returning to play for another year. This fall, most of the receivers that you see out on the field are going to look familiar. One player who worked to prove himself as a dependable red zone receiver last year was junior wide receiver Binjimen Victor.

    He did not see as much of the field as he would have liked, however.

    This spring, Victor had the opportunity to show that he has developed his talent and become a more reliable receiver that the Buckeyes can rely on in the fall. Even though he was a star in the spring game, he knows he still has to keep getting better.

    “The team, it was a pretty solid spring for the whole team,” Victor said. “For me, I feel like it was kind of up and down a little bit with consistency, but I got the summer to get that down and get ready for the season to help my team win games.”

    In the spring game on Saturday, Victor caught five passes for 91 yards, including a deep pass from redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins for 43 yards. Victor also scored a touchdown for the Gray team and demonstrated his speed and blocking abilities down the field.

    “I was pretty excited about the way I played today,” he said afterward. “I think it was a pretty solid day.”

    No matter who the quarterback is, Binjimen Victor’s job is to be at the right place at the right time. And although he has evolved in his position as a top option in the red zone last year, he wants to do more for this team. In order to do that, he has to work on his consistency. A good performance in the spring game does not mean everything.

    “I feel like I can be more consistent,” he said. “And my play can help my teammates develop that confidence in me.”

    When Binjimen Victor joined the likes of Dwayne Haskins and Keandre Jones as Ohio State commits on Jan. 18, 2016, it appeared that Victor could be the next breakout receiver in Columbus.

    Standing at an impressive 6-foot-4, Victor's size and speed figured to translate immediately to the football field, assuming he could add weight. He earned spot playing time in 2016 as a freshman, and figured to make a splash in 2017. But while he finished his sophomore year with seven touchdown receptions, there still seemed to be a sense around Columbus that Victor had yet to tap into his full potential.

    In Saturday's Spring Game, Victor flashed what his potential could be, hauling in five passes for 91 yards and a score. He was the lone rotational starter from last season to play the full game, and Urban Meyer said that was because he wants to push Victor to take the next step in his development.

    "I kept him in there because he has to just keep getting better. He has still got a ways to go. That's one of the most talented receivers we have ever had," Meyer said. "It's just consistency and fight and when he does, it's fun to watch. Very talented guy."

    Victor made a pair of highlight-reel catches Saturday, including a 43-yard pass from Dwayne Haskins, which set up his own 2-yard touchdown reception later in the drive.

    Binjimen Victor Beginning to Understand His Enormous Potential


    At 6-foot-4 and over 200 pounds, junior wide receiver Binjimen Victor is a difficult matchup for opposing cornerbacks. He proved that last year with his 23 receptions for 349 yards and seven touchdowns while splitting reps with classmate Austin Mack.

    Consistency, however, wasn’t ever his strong suit. Physically, Victor was capable of almost anything on the football field, but he still went five of Ohio State’s last seven games without recording a single reception.

    Not wanting to suffer the same fate this season, Victor put in the work during the offseason to become a more consistent threat. The change in approach has been noticed by his teammates.

    “His whole mindset is different, honestly,” Parris Campbell said. “Throughout the past year, Ben’s whole thing was just going with the flow. He knew he was talented and he thought that would get him through. The kid’s work ethic this offseason is out of this world. He’s putting on weight, gaining muscle, getting ripped up. I’m excited for people to see him in pads, honestly.”

    There is good reason for Campbell’s excitement.

    “That’s the most potential I’ve ever seen in a kid,” he said. “Just to be that size, being able to stop on a dime, and being able to do the things that he can do. He’s starting to figure it out.”

    It hasn’t been an overnight fix for Victor, who is now entering his third season as a Buckeye. With that maturity has seemingly come an understanding of exactly what is required to reach the expectations that his physical skill set promises. Campbell has seen the understanding finally taking hold of his talented teammate.

    “Just figuring out himself and figuring out the things that he needs to do to be the best he can be,” Campbell said. “Don’t get me wrong, he’s talented. Top of the top. He could be one of the best, but he’s figuring out that it’s going to take a little more. It’s going to take working and doing things that other guys aren’t doing. He’s figuring it out. He’s definitely close.”
